Luminaires sold today are dominated by fixtures with LEDs as the source. As always, their characteristics need to be reviewed and compared to choose the best fixture for an application. This class will review some lighting concepts including color, glare, and the need for control compatibility. Basic lighting terminology and metrics will be reviewed as well as some photometry, so evaluating and choosing a luminaire based on information shown on spec sheets and other supporting documentation is easier. It is designed to look at energy-efficient fixtures, especially LEDs, and learn to evaluate their technical features to select the most appropriate for a particular application. An exercise will help designers practice finding fixtures that meet the needs of a specific project. Basic knowledge of LED Lighting terminology and practice is recommended.
